Tough question i suppose.

Don't have a favorite myself, but i really like Max Cafard and his expansion of the Situationist's concept of psychological exploration called a Derive, into Surregional Exploration. His other essays skirting many philosophers and critiquing them was a nice introduction to all of these concepts I was ignorant of at the time.

Anyways, what's your favorite philosophy or philosopher?

Voltaire. He talked shit about religion and got away with it all his life in a time when that was a death sentence. And when he was on his deathbed a priest was begging him to renounce Satan and seek forgiveness. Voltaire thought about it, but instead said "Now is no time to be making enemies".

Now I'm not religious at all, but that takes balls to say when you're one day from dying.

"God is a comedian playing an act to an audience too afraid to laugh."

I greatly enjoy the consistency and naked honesty of Max Stirner's work. He's pretty remarkable in touching on the critiques of Post-Sructuralism and 20th century Existentialism well before the fact of either.

Easily Marx. Actually reading Capital was a major paradigm shift for me, as someone who did most of my undergrad before that in philosophy

I like Leo Strauss. Just because he makes a lot of old boring stuff way more interesting.

Ken Wilbur, among others. He's not a great philosopher, but his concepts gave me somewhere to go from bleak existentialism. I felt like I knew a little more about the shape of the world; it gave me some meaning to work with.

Considering all the answers here, how does anyone distinguish between these philosophers. Like some metric to meaningfully compare and contrast by?
